Daily Forex Preview for October 23, 2015

23 October, 2015

EURUSD Daily Pivots

EURUSD (1.11): EURUSD closed on a strong bearish note yesterday but the daily chart shows prices supported near the lower end of the larger rising price channel. The support zone near 1.11 through 1.108 looks to be holding right now, which indicates a potential move to the upside. Resistance comes in at 1.1254 followed by 1.130. A close above 1.1135 will indicate or confirm the move to the upside. Alternatively, failure to rally above 1.1254 will see EURUSD likely to decline lower back to 1.11 and eventually break down to previous lows.

USDJPY Daily Pivots

USDJPY (120.6): USDJPY closed on a bullish note yesterday marking 6 straight days of gains. Prices have briefly touched the highs of 120.97 in the process. We expect to see a decline back to 120.275 which marks a short term support/resistance level. If 120.275 holds, USDJPY could potentially rally back above the 121 level. Alternatively, failure to find support at 120.275 could see USDJPY decline lower to the previous support near 119.5 through 119.4 region.

Alternatively, a break below 1.535 could see GBPUSD break down to the next lower support at 1.52.
